Electric Hysteresis Brakes

Elec Hyst Final
  • These brakes utilize an electromagnet to generate drag torque
  • Drag torque is┬ádependent on input current and independent of slip speed, a constant current power supply such as our MPP24 must be used
  • Torque on each unit can be adjusted to any value between bearing drag (~0) and the max torque indicated in the table below by adjusting input current
  • Select brake based on torque requirement
    • Refer to heat curve on product data sheet to ensure speed and torque of your application will not exceed heat rating of brake
    • Refer to product data sheet for dimensional data

Common Applications

For specialized or sensitive processes that require precise and constant tension control, our Electric Hysteresis brakes can be used in conjunction with our MPP24 Tension Controller in order to achieve either open-loop or closed-loop constant tension control. This is especially useful for applications that undergo a large diameter change (large ratio between full spool diameter and empty spool diameter).

Constant Tension Payoff

For specialized or sensitive processes that require precise and constant tension control, our Electric Hysteresis brakes can be used in conjunction with our MPP24 Tension Controller in order to achieve either open-loop or closed-loop constant tension control. This is especially useful for applications that undergo a large diameter change (large ratio between full spool diameter and empty spool diameter).
Electric Hysteresis brakes are often used for motor testing. When used in conjunction with our MPP24 power supply, they allow for a programmable duty cycle to be used to subject a motor to a realistic loading conditions. For high-power motors, we offer air cooled versions of our brakes to allow for more power to be dissipated by the brake.
